BONUS FEATURES

THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY Blu-ray has an excellent selection of bonus features, from the genesis of the movie to details about the food.

“The Hundred Foot Journey with Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey” –  a conversation with the co-producers of the movie about how and why they chose to work together on this movie and behind-the-scenes stories about the cast and crew.

“The Recipe, the Ingredients, the Journey” – commentary by cast and crew about how the film got made and why they chose to make this journey.  I love that Om Puri (Papa) created a family atmosphere for everyone on the set.  Every aspect of the film is touched on, from the choosing the story and the cast to the food preparation (my favorite part) to the music and visuals that make this movie so special.  This was a 15-minute bonus feature, but, like the movie it supports, it left me craving Indian food.

“On Set with Oprah Winfrey” – Oprah visits the set during production.
